  • Smithton Standards for Excellence

    Posted by Charles Hoover at 1/4/2017


    Smithton Standards of Excellence

    As we move into the second semester of the 2016-17 school year, it is important to remind our students of school expectations.  As the school year comes to a close in May, the following standards will be used to identify students who will be able to participate in non-academic “fun” events.  All end of the year events are considered a celebration of the hard work and accomplishments of our students.  The school’s administration and faculty are committed to help and support all students in meeting these expectations.

    Attendance: 90% attendance rate (with possible exceptions) using the current semester data.

    Discipline: No major office referrals. Chronic buddy and/or recovery room visits may also be considered.

    Achievement: No failing grades on the most recent Individual Progress Report (IPR).  There is an opportunity for students to bring their grade to passing prior to predetermined date of an event in order for the student to be eligible for an event.

    This information will be shared with students on a regular basis.  Their advisory teacher will be available to respond to student questions and support a student’s progress.

  • How Sick is Too Sick?

    Posted by Charles Hoover at 1/3/2017


    When students are feeling sick, how can you decide whether its still ok to come to school? Here are some guidelines for symptoms that mean your student should stay home:

    1. Temperature of 100 degrees or greater
    2. Vomiting with associated signs of illness
    3. Diarrhea
    4. Unusual or unexplained rash
    5. Persistent cough
    6. Ongoing symptoms of discomfort or immobility from an injury
    7. A concerning health condition that may require further medical evaluation


    Students may return to school when:

    1. Fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication
    2. Vomiting and/or diarrhea free for 24 hours
    3. Other conditions subside or with a provider’s note

    Dear Parents,

    After all school events, school administrators and staff are required to remain with students until they have been picked up by a parent or another adult. Students are reminded of this prior to and at the close of an event. Those who are not picked up within 20 minutes after the conclusion of an event may be told that they cannot come to future events. Your child’s safety is a priority. Smithton staff’s time is valuable. Working together both can be protected.

    Dr. Schumacher
